Evie and I made this one up this morning. Just a harmonious mixture of dried fruit, coconut oil and oats, smashed together in a food processor. A lovely little, chewy snack on the go at the park, or at home in between playing "tea" or having a swim. My toddler in particular is a busy little monster, I'm always losing her in the house (mostly in wardrobes), or chasing her at the park - we've had many near misses of being taken out by those metal whirly things or someone on a swing - yikes! To keep her going, the glucose in the dried fruit, coupled with the protein in the oats is the perfect snack to keep her energised and momentarily stops her from saying "more" while holding those chubby little arms out.
